The Great Canadian Flag Project
Our Canadian flag is fifty years young this year. It is our symbol of national pride, emblematic of all that is good in our country, a global symbol of hope. We are pleased to announce, Windsor City Council approved our gift of the Great Canadian Flag Project. It’s official, the Great Canadian Flag Project Committee, with your help, will erect a beautiful and proud example of our Canadian flag. The location of this flag marks the entrance to Dieppe Gardens, a place where we honour Canadians, those who serve, served and especially our fallen.
We all know Canada is a nation of immigrants. Some arriving over 50,000 years ago some arrived, yesterday. Our ancestral paths are varied. We are all bound by love of country, protected by laws that guarantee our freedom to speak, to worship without fear, to assemble in peace. We are guaranteed the right to vote and a free and unrestricted press. Together we will celebrate these rights and freedoms.
It is our plan to incorporate an, “Oath of Citizenship “as part of the dedication ceremony. We will welcome new Canadians. Further, we will remember our family members who made the journey to this new land, giving us everything we have and hold dear.
The $355,000 necessary for this project is being raised through private and corporate donations all of which is entrusted to the Windsor Essex Community Foundation. Join us in honouring our flag! Please consider making a donation to this project. Cheques can be mailed to the address shown above.
“O Canada...Our Canada!”
